Rob Long's Intervention Toolbox is written for education practitioners who support young people with problem behaviours that act as barriers to their successful engagement with school. Taking a multi-dimensional approach, the Toolbox provides solutions to deal with the multi-faceted nature of challenging behaviour.
There are 6 compartments to the Toolbox:
For each compartment there are a number of tools (interventions) that may be used depending on the age and level of understanding of the young person. As all problem behaviours have many component parts, the Toolbox enables practitioners to employ several interventions to comprehensively tackle challenging behaviours.
There are specific sections on both Asperger's Syndrome and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders with In Class Behaviour Plans for these learners, as well as an accompanying CD Rom including resources for putting strategies into practice. The CD Rom also provides PowerPoint slides for training staff in using the Toolbox.
As an experienced professional, teacher and educational psychologist, Rob Long's strategies combine innovation with sound psychology and learning theories.

The simple answer to this often asked question is probably yes. But the reasons lie more outside teenagers than inside. For too many teachers there can be an attitude of: "I was a teenager once, therefor I know what it is like." But we all develop in a unique time and the issues are unique to that period. Pressures differ, fears differ. There are times when schools are seen to be part of the problem rather than the solution.
